This joke is very common on the Navajo reservation. It deals with a time when the Navajo language had to deal with new phrases and new concepts and the challanges that occur with "literal" translation.

Thanks to Larry King who was willing to let me share this clip with everyone on the interweb! Also thanks to Valarie Jim who provided an alternative ending to the joke & hadn't heard.

Note: I will eventually post subtitles to this, so you can understand what is being said.
